Description: BAS Vs FRK Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Little riding on today’s encounter with Basel well clear of Frankfurt.
This had the makings of being a potentially closely contested and intriguing encounter, a narrative which was quick to be dismissed by Basel. When the side went to take on Frankfurt back in March in the round of 16 of the Europa League, Basel handed out a routing to 3-0 Frankfurt to all but wrap up this double-header.
Completely outclassed and outshined in every department of the game on the day, Frankfurt were rendered as nothing more than sitting ducks in the first round by Basel. It was not only a comprehensive decimation but a damaging result for the club’s ambitions of venturing into the quarter-finals of the competition as well.
And with the team failing to better its defence once football returned in Germany with the team being trounced by sides in Bundesliga 2019-20 back in June, the side stands hardly any chance of overturning the harrowing deficit they are burdened with today. In a jeopardy, things are expected to go from bad to worse for the visiting team as Basel build on the three goal lead they hold.
BAS Vs FRK Dream11 Probable Winner
With nothing to lose, we could be in for a match where Frankfurt come hot out of the blocks and managed to stick a goal past Basel. However, they’ll be far bereft of a win today with Basel’s 3-0 lead giving the home side a comfortable cushion to relax and sit back on.

Frankfurt Vs Basel: 0-3
As Bundesliga wrapped up proceedings for the 2019-20, Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp ended up accumulating the most number of saves to his name. The side’s goal-keeper was the only saving grace of an otherwise horrid defensive setup, a shot stopper who makes for a must have pick in the wake of an outstanding season for the club.
The cleansheet Basel pulled off when these two last met each other in the league isn’t the only reason we are going to be indulging in the four picks from the side for this clash. The side has been in stellar touch defensively in the league as well with its last two outings seeing the side keep two straight cleansheets.
It’s a narrative which will see the trivalent of the indomitable Eray Comert, Silvart Widmer, Blas Riveros and Raoul Petretta make a foray into our framework for the clash. The trio is joined by Raoul Petretta who has strung together the three assists for the club in his escalated wide forward attacking role.
As Frankfurt leave no stone unturned to wipe away the massive three goal deficit staring them today, Daichi Kamada will be massively relied on to help bring about the unprecedented task to fruition for the club. And while it’s a long ask, the club’s top scorer is capable of doing so with him having shown his acumen with the 6 goals he has to his name in the league.
Filip Kostic joins him up owing to the two goals and three assists he has for the side, two players capable of embarking on an unprecedented task for the side. Elsewhere, Basel will see top scorer Fabian Frei with the four goals line up our facet along with Valentin Stocker who has become a mainstay of his side’s attacking gameplan with the two goals and two assists in his kitty.
While the two goals Andre Silva has for Frankfurt in the competition were more than enough to see us make him our striker from Frankfurt, the form he was in the Bundesliga make him a must have pick. Basel will see us opt for Arthur Cabral meanwhile with the team’s striker set to make the most of a defensively vulnerable and weakened Frankfurt setup.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With a hand in four goals, Stocker will captain our side while Frei is the vice-captain.
